    I've got some really bad news for these retarded misfits masquerading as educators: By the time the dust settles, all the charges are likely to be dismissed and they be will royally sued for illegal search of the first phone without a warrant and her subsequent arrest. As government actors, they can only conduct such a search with a warrant issued based on probable cause. That girl will have nice nest egg for college by the time this is over.

    Tampa Tribune: Porn image on confiscated phone leads to arrest of Wiregrass student (July 2 2013)

    Deputies arrested a 15-year-old Wiregrass Ranch High School student Monday, charging her with possession of child pornography that was found on a cell phone confiscated in May during a class, according to the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.

    On May 21, the student's white iPhone was confiscated by a teacher because the student was suspected of cheating on a test.

    When administrators searched the phone for photos of the test, they found a photo of a 15-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl performing a sex act.

    During the investigation, authorities discovered the photo was sent to another Wiregrass Ranch student, who then posted it on Twitter.​

    As the constitution was written, yes. As it has been abused and eroded by monkeys in black robes over a very long time in favor of government actors oppressing people, perhaps not. See this interesting article by the Peppardine law school, given the fact the teacher was looking at photos to determine whether the student had cheated on a test.


    While the student *may* prevail, it is far from a certainty. What I find extremely troubling here is the criminalizing of childhood behavior and judgement lapses. These are kids, not adults, and it serves NOBODY's interest to mark them as felons for the rest of their lives or incarcerate them for these types of things, simply because there's statutes on the books that can be used to hit them, statutes that were intended for adult predators.

    This kind of mindless application of oppressive laws shows that our society has lost its perspective, its bearings, and its internal cohesion. Is the only thing holding it together force and fear of prison?

    I'm...not sure if I want to know the answer to that.
